Everything was excellent, perhaps look to have sharper knives and scissors, as these were not ideal.The view and the friendliness of the people were great. Andre was extremely helpful, we really enjoyed our stay

As previous reviewers have mentioned, Albatross House has an absolutely stunning view of the Simons Town harbor! Should you choose to stay here you must rise early on at least one morning to watch the sunrise which will take your breath away. We stayed over for three nights at the end of April as a break in the middle of...

Comfortable, clean and well appointed with stunning views over False Bay. Ideally suited for a family stay, especially as there are two bathrooms and a very comfortable lounge area. Spent a lot of time on the verandah watching the sea :-).

We stayed two nights in December. The view was amazing the beds comfortable and the hosts very helpful. At the time there were two hours of power outages each night and Andre made sure we had candles and torches and knew to head to dinner before the lights went out. The location is terrific for exploring Simons town, Cape Point...

We stayed here for two nights. The apartment had a nice view but it felt cluttered and dusty, especially the bedrooms. I thought it was overpriced for what it was and for where it was. It's not somewhere I would choose to stay again.

The apartment was well set out, ideal for a family. The balcony and views across the water were great. The owner was friendly and helpful. The only downside was the lots of steps to haul the suitcases up and down. Not so much a problem but an observation for those who may not be great on their feet.

We had a very nice family-room where the children had their own room and badroom. The owners took good care of us by making a nice breakfast and by giving lots of information about the things to see and do. The room was very very clean, good beds. Very nice terras and even a small kitchen. There are lots of...

We stayed at the nice apartment with wonderful sea view. Owners were very helpful and location was also good if you have a car. Near the property is nice beach with lots of penguins and it is easy to drive there from the airport (owners give good directions).

We spent two nights at Albatross - initially only booked for one but decided to stay a second night we enjoyed it so much. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well-appointed, the hosts friendly and full of useful information and best of all, the views are simply stunning. I spent time in Simon's Town many years ago while in the...
